First of all I have to say that the idea is not mine, but Domcoppinger’s. I have used his mods “More Dragons”, “Even More Dragons” and “Most Dragons” for a while, but after some time I found myself quiting Skyrim, deactivating the mod or activating another, and starting Skyrim again, everytime I went into or out of a town or village.

There had to be an easier way. This mod works in a similar way as Domcoppinger’s mods, but switching can be done ingame through the use of a spell to which a script is attached. After casting the spell you are presented with a menu from which you can select one of six different timings of dragon encounters: Most, More, Many, Default, Less, Least. Most, More and Many are similar to Domcoppinger’s mods Most Dragons, Even More Dragons and More Dragons respecitively. Default is the same as Skyrim’s default time between encounters. I have added Less and Least in case you want to have the least chance of being disturbed by dragon attacks during an important mission. Most important however is the possibility to change the setting ingame.

The spell tome for the spell can be found under the table in the ruined house in between Fort Greymoor and the Western Watchtower.

Be careful using the More and Most settings, at least inside villages and towns, as there may appear two or maybe even three dragons at the same time. If you’re in bad luck they may annihilate an entire village.

When walking from Whiterun west you first find an ruined Imperial tower, the Western Watchtower, guarded by Whiterun guards. Further west you see castle ruins, and in between on your right, there is a ruined house.

I don't know if any higher settings are possible. I will have to check the scripts.

is changing the setting up to 6 possible through console command or other? or would this be my best chance for exponentially increasing dragon encounters completely ridiculously

@AJLA616: When using the mod, it only changes a global variable in the game, that is set to default in the vanilla game (a value of 2). My mod varies that from 0 (Least) to 5 (Most). Maybe the game randomizes this value, but I'm not sure. At least the number of dragons to spawn is randomized, I think, as I have encountered 1, 2 or 3 dragons at the same time with the 'Most' setting. BTW (it just pops into my mind): do you have the managedragonencounters.bsa file in your Data folder? This type of file seems to get misplaced sometimes. If it's not in the Data folder or the Skyrim folder, then you can download the file from my website:
